Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Mason (Xander Berkeley) gets word that Alexis is coming out of surgery. He tells Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) they should be there to question him. Jack opts to remain in Saugus, trying to figure out why Alexis wanted the power cut off at 7:20 p.m. to what looks like an empty field. Teri's (Leslie Hope) memory returns, and she's horrified, until Tony (Carlos Bernard) tells her that Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) called CTU; she's still alive. Kim, meanwhile, is in police custody. Rick (Daniel Bess) tells her to tell the cops everything, and he'll back her up. She tells the cop who arrested her that she was kidnapped, but he doesn't believe her. After the press conference, Sherry (Penny Johnson Jerald) angrily tells Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) he's just made his concession speech, and tells him, "It's over." He asks her, "Do you mean the campaign or us?" and she walks away. Jack finds some kind of underground facility and goes inside, where he's attacked by guards. He wakes up in a cell. Andre Drazen is outside the compound with his squad, waiting for the power to go out. When Jack wakes up, DeSalvo (Lou Diamond Phillips) tells him he's in a Department of Defense Detention Center. They're expecting a prisoner at 7:20, but his identity is classified. Jack tells DeSalvo to call for backup, and to arm everyone at the facility. The prisoner is delivered. Andre doesn't make his move because the power doesn't go out. Palmer finds out that his press conference actually helped him in the polls. Jack manages to get a look at the prisoner. It's Victor Drazen (Dennis Hopper), the man Jack and his team supposedly killed in Bosnia. Jack realizes that somebody will try to spring Victor, and convinces DeSalvo that they need to move the prisoner.
